South Korea’s Doosan Heavy Industries & Construction has won an order worth $186 million to build a seawater reverse osmosis desalination (SWRO) plant in Iran. The order was given by Iran’s Sazeh Sazan Company.
The plant, called ‘SAKO SWRO‘ will be built at Bandar Abbas, the capital of Hormozgan Province, and is said to be the first SWRO procurement won by a foreign company since international sanctions were lifted.
It will desalinate around 200,000 tons of water a day, which would be supplied to mines in the region, and is due for completion in October 2018.
Doosan will be in charge of engineering, procurement, construction and test operation of the facility and also provide operation and maintenance (O&M) services until October 2030.
The company signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreement with the Iranian National Water and Wastewater Engineering Company (NWWEC) in April.
